  • I used Arctic MX-4 for these step for its thermal properties, and it was hanging around in my desk. You can use any thermal paste that you would like, just use the same process.

  • Drop a pea sized drop on each die. As long as your paste is not electrically conductive, do not worry if you put a little too much on.

  • You'll know if you have put the right amount of thermal paste if your temperatures are lower/you are not thermal throttling anymore.

  • Now that you've added the thermal paste, go back through this guide, retracing your steps until you've completely reasembled your laptop.

  • Fire up MSI Afterburner, Intel Extreme Tuning Utility OMEN Command Center, or your favorite monitoring program and check your temps/thermal throttling while gaming.

  • Now my temperatures have gone down about 5 degrees centigrade during gaming, and about 10 degrees on idle.

  • The biggest improvement is that your OMEN will no longer thermal throttle. I have noticed a 20-40fps improvement in all of the games I play, including Overwatch, H1Z1, League of Legends, Counter-Strike, and BeamNG.Drive.
